If you ever tell your child "We"ll see." Does that usually mean yes or no for you. My toddler atomatically takes that as a yes.

  • It's usually "no" for me but it depends on what they are asking for. My oldest son would rather hear "we'll see' than no! He'll ask me something and I might say no or I don't know and he'll say "We'll see mom? We'll see?" So I'll say yes we'll see!

  • It usually means No for me too. My oldest daughter understands this and always gets irritated when i say it.

  • it depends...if they keep pestering that "we'll see" turns into a no, but if they leave it at that then its a yes.

  • I agree with Hypermamaz: It means, I actually will look into it and decide, but, if you bring it up even one more time, then, it automatically means no.

  • When I say it, it will probably be a no, but I actually do mean that it depends on how the rest of the day or evening go. however, my SD does seem to think that I mean yes a lot. Sometimes she goes the opposite though and assumes I mean no. She is 9. I think sometimes she takes my answers as what her mom would do. And in general her mom gives her whatever she wants or something else she may want...
